NIH invites applications for its rapid access to interventional development (NIH-RAID) program.
This program announcement is an NIH Roadmap Initiative. The NIH Roadmap is an innovative approach to accelerate fundamental discovery and translate that knowledge into effective prevention strategies and new treatments. All NIH institutes and centers participate in Roadmap Initiatives.
Promising ideas for novel therapeutic interventions can sometimes encounter roadblocks in the pipeline of preclinical development. The NIH-RAID program makes available on a competitive basis certain critical resources needed for the development of new small molecule, oligonucleotide, and peptide therapeutic agents. It is intended to reduce some of the common barriers between laboratory discoveries and clinical trials of new therapies.
Letters of Intent Receipt Dates: August 14, 2007 and December 15, 2007.
Application Receipt Dates: September 14, 2007 and January 15, 2008.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Tony Jackson, NIH-RAID Pilot Program Office; telephone: 301-594-4660; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
